fiber optic
So I have a power supply but not a computer to test it in. I know I can put a jumper between the 2 specific pins to turn it on. I checked all the voltages with my meter and they were all OK. Does that mean my power supply is OK or do I need to do a load test, which I am not equipped to do.

If you have voltage you are good. To test for a complete circuit do a resistance test as well.
